I think I've read 'Incidents' but never heard of '5th Born.' Intriguing title.

I just began reading it and its painfully sad, but its intriguing enough. It was in my recommendations and it got a lot of 5 starts so I said why not.

message 34: by Enrico (new)

Enrico Downer (ricodowner) | 5 comments Currently reading the much reviewed "Brown Girl, Brownstones", the story of a West Indian girl and her troubled family living in Brooklyn, NY in the forties. Quite a lengthy read and I am past what I thought was the true climax. Excellent prose, nevertheless.

message 35: by Selena (new)

Selena Haskins (booksbyselena) | 4 comments Finished Carl Weber The Man in 3B and it was awesome! Best book I've read in a long time- suspense, funny, mystery, drama, all wrapped in one! I loved it!


message 36: by Enrico (new)

Enrico Downer (ricodowner) | 5 comments I am currently struggling with "White Teeth" by Zadie Smith. Not that it is not a really funny and gripping story in parts, but that it is so bloody long and the chapters shoot off in different directions. A clashing of cultures in post-war England. Who else has read this epic?

message 37: by KC (new)

KC (goodreadscomkcwashington) | 6 comments I loved White Teeth and all her other books although not as fond of the new one N.W. still a wonderful writer. Getting ready to start Marquez' melancoly whores.

message 41: by Kelvin (new)

Kelvin Reed (kelvinlreed) | 6 comments I just finished a legal thriller by real-life attorney Ken Isaacson titled "Silent Counsel." It's about a lawyer who refuses to disclose the identity of his client, a man who killed a little boy in a hit-and-run accident. The story took several unpredictable twists and turns (no pun intended). I highly recommend it.

How do you like Octavia Butler? I tried reading something from her a while ago but it didn't hold my interest. It might have been Parable of the Sower. Can you recommend another title from her?
